My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 191 Christmas

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

We are back with another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Ch. 191 is Christmas. Design team sister Sue asked us to make a Christmas card or project with lots of elements--at least 3 different elements. Wow, can you believe that in 3 more months it will be Christmas Eve! Where has time gone! I was happy to see this challenge so I could get a head start with making Christmas cards!

My card begins with a 4" x 12" piece of Recollections red cardstock. When folded the card measures 4" x 6". Other papers are from my scrap stash.

I chose to use a surprise element for this card. Browsing through blogs and YouTube, I saw the Pop Up Panel Cards and had to give it a try. You can see the blog post and video for the card style made by Joy at Obsessed with Scrapbooking. I love the pop up element of the card. Thanks Joy for the measurements and Cricut Design Space file to make this card style!

Cricut Cartridges:
Christmas/Noel - Swirl Tree is cut 4.2" high. It is pop-dotted on the red mat.

Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder is used on the red mat on front of card. I added a Merry Christmas sticker and a 3D holly embellishment on front of the card. These have been in my stash supplies for years..sure do need to use of a lot of that stuff.

 Inside the card.

Cricut Anna's Fancy Lettering -Noel is cut using the Hannah Font.

Anna's Christmas Cards and Embellishments - Joys of the Season is printed on the white square.
